|Please feel free to use any pics that I post on Findagrave and please contact me about any changes or transfers. I took them for each of you to have!|
I have been doing genealogy for about 10 years now. My sister and I have been going to different cemeteries around our county and taking pictures of headstones and adding them. We have been successful at finding a few cemeteries hidden on people's properties. We do not have family ties in these cemeteries, we do it to help everyone else. We also do it to document old graves before they are long gone and no one knows they were there. I have been searching for several family graves in other states for years. I hope someone comes across them one day and I hope we come across one that you are looking for one day!

Mr.Whallon was married to my husband's Mom, and had 3 children together....my husband died 3/17/2016.....
Thomas Asbury- You have requested a picture of his stone for his memorial. I created the memorial and have a picture that a lady sent me but it does not meet Find A Grave guidelines. She had smeared it with shaving cream. (Cringe, I know.) The stone is no longer visible in the cemetery. Sometime prior to 2012, when the other stones were photographed, a playground was built over the cemetery. Members of the neighborhood sued to stop it but to no avail. The lady that took the shaving cream picture informed me of its location and that it was on the ground (the church laid the markers on the ground prior to 1959 using the school's agriculture students as the labor force, so they cut the grass easier.). I believe, from her description, that it is under the slide. I have tried to get the church to let me probe for it but have only gotten the run around. I will keep trying. If you would like a copy of the shaving cream picture for your records, I will be glad to send it to you via your personal email. Just send me the email address. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

I am sorry, I made a mistake in my attempt to connect Mollie her spouse, I just tried to change it but sure I could.
Her spouse was Hugh Lawrence Caudill.
I am very sorry.

I saw that you moved him. While the cemetery is well kept, (because it is right in the middle of a golf course) there is plenty of evidence of unmarked graves. Based on what you said, I have no doubt that he is buried there. If his grave was marked, it isn't marked now.

I did a photo survey of Horseshoe Cemetery (Black) today. While I did not find Samuel George, there are a lot of unmarked graves. You did not reply to my previous message, so I don't know why you placed him in the other Horseshoe Cemetery. If he is buried in the Horseshoe Cemetery that I added to Findagrave today, there is no evidence of his grave site there either.

You created a memorial in Horseshoe Cemetery for Samuel George. This is a Snidow Family Cemetery. It is completely mapped by the family as to who is buried there and where their graves are. While there are graves with no stones or unreadable stones, the family has a name for every grave. Samuel George is not on their list. First, where did you get your info that he is buried there? Two, is he black? If he is he may indeed be buried in another cemetery that was also part of the Snidow Horseshoe Plantation and started as a slave cemetery. According to the local undertaker it is also called Horseshoe. This Horseshoe cemetery is not on Find A Grave yet. I do plan on getting out there this month and documenting what I can find. Could this be where Samuel George is buried?

I noticed you had photo request for Samuel Muncy Deskins and his wife Rachel Ratliff Deskins, I wanted to let you know there are no markers and this information is by word of mouth as to where they are buried.

It is her cause her mother is buried right next to her.
